Well, that is going to change. I am going back to using it. SPREADS stands for: Scan, Prediction, Read, Evaluate, Authorize (which I changed to Author's Purpose), Details, Summary.
It works like this. Before the class reads a story, they do the following: Scan the story and then Predict what the story will be about. While reading: they Read the story and write down and thoughts or ideas they have. After reading it they: Evaluate (write 3 questions about what they read), Author's Purpose (tell why the author wrote this story), Details (answer the 5 Ws), and then write a Summary.
My class really enjoyed doing this, so I'm excited to be doing it again this year. They could do in in small groups with me, with a partner, alone, in groups, or they could even do some parts for homework to check for understanding.
Here are the new signs I made for my classroom using cute graphics.
Let me know what you think. I have this for sale in my TPT store, if you want to take a look.
